It is our pleasure to let our well-wishes know what happens here in the SWM. Our Churches are growing with membership and programs in the local areas. The Andhra State Church took a good growth with 62 churches and increasing membership by the grace of God. Our 65 Orissa Churches and 35 Chhatisgarh Churches are left to function independently. Six Andhra Pastors were here in the Head Quarters for a two days refresher course on the 10th and 11th of August 2017. They had a great time learning new things. The State coordinator Pastor Immaniyel’s term was extending for 2 more years.
The Soul Winning Mission Theological Seminary will be officially reopened on June 24, 2019. This is our 23rd academic year of degree programs.
In the academic year 2018-19, We opened the Seminary for Evening Classes in the M.Div. and M.Th. level, in order to facilitate Pastors who are interested for higher studies. New testaments and Missions are the two disciplines on M.Th. that we offer.
In 2019, we will consider opening B.Th Evening program for pastors with Diploma, as well.
We opened Satellite programs of theological educations in 2018, in centers that are church-based, where qualified pastors are ministering and qualified teachers are available. In these centers, we are mainly offering C.Th. and Dip.Th. programs. These centers are advancing vigorously.
The SWM ministries in M.P and U.P are progressing under the able leadership of Pastor James Varghese. The Chairman Rev.Dr.Jacob P.Isaac has also been unanimously elected as the first Chairman of the Advisory Board of the All India Christian Protection Movement (AICPM) in the board meeting held at the Capital city of Kerala on 11-08-2017.
